BRIAN SCIARETTA - Sunday, March 2, 2014
U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann made a series of roster changes over the weekend as Michael Bradley, Mix Diskerud, and Tim Ream all withdrew while Jonathan Spector was added.
The U.S. team is set to take on Ukraine on Wednesday in its first and only friendly on a FIFA international date in 2014 before the opening of World Cup camp in May. The game was originally set to take place in the Ukraine but was forced to be moved due to political unrest.
The game will take place in Cyprus with the original camp taking place in Frankfurt Germany.
For Jonathan Spector, it could be his first game with the U.S. national team since a 1-0 win over Italy on February 29, 2012 in Genoa.
